          APPEAL OF                                 DOCKET NO.: CJ220305RT

                 Emilia Barboza,                    RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                              :     DOCKET NO.: BG220470S

                              PETITIONER      :


          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued concerning the housing accommodation 
          known as 1103 Carroll Street, Brooklyn, N.Y., Apt. #4-A.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issues raised by the petition.

          This proceeding was commenced on June 25, 1987, when the tenant 
          asserted that the owner had failed to maintain certain services in 
          the subject apartment.

          In an answer, the owner denied the allegations set forth in the 
          complaint or otherwise asserted that all required repairs had been 
          or will be completed and further alleged that the tenant refused to 
          provide access to the subject apartment.

          Thereafter a no access inspection of the subject apartment was 
          conducted on August 10, 1988, by a DHCR inspector who found that 
          all services specified in the complaint were corrected.

          In its petition for administrative review, the tenant states, in 
          substance, that the order should be reversed because the owner 
          failed to correct the services specified in the complaint.

          The petition was sent to the owner on May 3, 1989.  In response, 
          the owner urged that the petition be denied.

          After a careful consideration of the entire evidence of record the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

          Pursuant to Section 2523.4(a) of the Rent Stabilization Code, the 


          DHCR is required to order a rent reduction, upon application by a 
          tenant, where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain 
          required services.

          The Commissioner finds, that the tenant's petition does not 
          establish any basis for modifying or revoking the Administrator's 
          order which determined that, based on the inspection results, the 
          owner was maintaining required services and that a rent reduction 
          was not warranted.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, it is 

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and 
          that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, 


                                                   Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
